    HOW TO FIX A F****D UP ANKLE


    Alright, well today i trashed my ankle. Rolled it, possibly broke it. My question tho is if it isnt broke is what is the best way to go about rehabing it and what supps would speed the process.

    If its sprained, that's worse than broken IMO. Plenty of rest was the remedy for me when I had mine twisted up. Not sure about the supps though.

    if it is broke it is simple they will just cast you and the healing is done on its own... but like the guy said above me its more of a pain in the ass if it is sprained, plenty of rest is good. my teammates are always rolling their ankles it sucks.. try to maybe get ur hands on an air cast that can be worn with sneakers its not huge and will def help stabilize it while it is weak...also u should do some light rehabing for it nothing crazy so you keep you strenght and range on motion...if you do this make sure to take it easy and always ice after...good luck

    It depends what exactly the injury, but Super Cissus RX is king for joint pain and aches imo. I went from not being able to put on my jacket my shoulder was in so much pain to 3 days later lifting shoulders with maximum effort, and it being offered at 16.99 for bulk, simply cannot beat that.

    whatever you do or take just make sure that if it is sprained bad you build the strenght back up properly, you do not want it to be a recurring problem

    Remember this acronym, for all muscle/skeletal injuries.

    R.I.C.E.

    Rest
    Ice
    Compression
    Elevation

    Stay off of it, let it rest and heal
    Put ice on it, I usually do 10 min on and 10 min off, but def not more than 20 min on or if it gets "numb"
    Compression, use an ace wrap etc, but keep it unwrapped at night when you sleep.
    Elevation..will help bring the swelling down.
    On top of all that you can use NSAIDS like motrin, tylenol, etc. I do not have any experiance with cissus, but many like it.

    Couldn't agree more with this. Take it easy, especially when you FEEL 100% and start to push it. Thats when you re-injure yourself because while you feel 100%, you're more like 70%. Go slow and steady, lots of ice will help.

    Stay away from tylenol as it doesnt actually reduce inflammation, just lowers fever and reduces pain, and your injury has a whole mess of inflammatory processes going on right now. Go with ibuprofen.

    did mine 16 days ago- still ****ed up a little bit......pretty much tore everything- but I am almost at the point where I can run again

    try this:
    ice at least 3x per day, 20 minutes each time
    elevation for at least 2 hrs. per day
    Osteo Sport 12 capsules per day
    Bio Mend 9 capsules per day
    Fish Oil 9 capsules per day
    Tylenol 4 per day- it is good for inflammation, at least for me, or Ibuprofen.....

    strengthening exercises:
    toe circles (both directions)- gonna hurt like a bitch at first....
    wobble board
    stretching
    rubber band exercises
